Event description

Description

Come and learn how can you help control Common (Indian) Myna Bird impacts. This workshop will explain how to identify this bird, how to report your sightings and how you can start trapping in your own backyard.

After attending this event, if you're interested in trapping, you can borrow a cage and learn how to set it up. Participants will also need to sign the Animal Welfare Protocol before starting any trapping.

The ‘Common Myna Humane Reduction Program in Brisbane’ is a community program of the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee which creates community awareness of Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) impacts. Volunteers have built cages and participants are trapping Common Myna birds in their backyards.

FREE. RSVP required. Refreshments provided.
If you have any queries phone 3398 8003 or email b4c@bulimbacreek.org.au.

Proudly sponsored by the Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor's Environment Grant provided to Brisbane Catchments Network.

Why are Common Myna birds are problem?
Common Mynas were listed among 100 of the world’s worst invasive species by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) in 2000. In Australia, Common Myna birds are considered to threaten native biodiversity due to their territorial behaviours and nest cavity competition
